Light yellow color with white cap.

Aroma of bright, spicy hops with a bready undertone.

Taste on entry is hop forward with a limited malt presence. Indeed, you have to search for the malt as it's light shines rather dimly. Disappointing actually, like a promising young athlete who turns out to be too clumsy to make it at the college level. The malt part seems about right but is so overshadowed by hop bitterness it's presence is diminished.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Cut the IBU back to about 30 this beer would be in the ballpark. As currently constructed this is an IPL masquerading as a Pilsner.

Pretty solid, drinkable beer. Optics and clarity are on-point, smell has a nice toasted sesame cracker, hay and pepper spice. Flavor isn't just a bland watery pilsener, definitely has some spice (peppercorn, maybe some clove) elements to it that adds dimension to the base.

Golden colored with just a trace of haziness. There's a sold inch of creamy dishwater white on top. The aroma is of grassy hops and pale malt. I'm tasting more grassy hops than pale malt. The body is very delicate and quaffable. This has plenty of flavor and is very refreshing.

Great take on the style. A little more hoppy than the ones across the Atlantic, it still remains clear and not too complex. It's what I'm looking for in a good pilsner, unpretentious and great on a hot day.

DATE: February 9, 2017... OCCASION: toasting a nice snow day with the family... GLASSWARE: Penn State pilsner... pours a thick, sudsy two-finger white head that forms even, balanced coral lacing... a light golden body sports healthy effervescence that can be seen through its translucence... tart banana, lemon zest, cracker, and light spices make for an inviting take on the style... first draft is a stern, medium-bodied with a smooth intake and a reasonably lingering aftertaste... pleasant, easy-drinking, and textured enough to avoid a simple mouth-rinser... banana, lemon, light bread malts, and some spiciness--pepper?--with the unmistakable noble hops that evokes garden hose metal.... slightly buttery and floral too... having chosen this as the "Atlanta" representative at the Super Bowl party last week--and downing more than a few with little effort--I can attest that it is a serviceable pilsner that offers enough of a flavor profile to not be lost in the shuffle of pilsners...
